Visitors Can Experience The World In Miniature

CINCINNATI, OH — The 8th Annual SCALE MODEL EXPO, featuring a fascinating world of miniatures hand-crafted by the region’s best model makers, is Saturday and Sunday March 5-6 at the award-winning EnterTRAINment Junction in West Chester. The event is FREE to the public.

Kids, parents and grandparents can see incredible working miniatures hand-built by the area’s talented model craftsman, including such items as miniature steam engines, internal combustion engines, ships, boats, airplanes, cars, running large-scale locomotives, military vehicles and dioramas, action figures and more.

Nearly 80 scale model engineering hobbyists will be on hand to not only display their remarkable miniatures but also to talk about the hobby and answer questions from the public. The scale model exhibit will be on display in EnterTRAINment Junction’s indoor Main Street area and in its large Expo Center.

The free scale model show runs Saturday, March 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 6 from noon to 4 p.m.

Also at the scale model show, members of the Middletown VA Outpatient Clinic will be at the event to hand out information to military veterans and register them for VA health care. Many military veterans attend the event because they have a keen interest in seeing the numerous types of military mini-models that crafters build by hand. In fact, the special craft of making military miniatures is now used as a therapy for veterans.

The scale model event is part of March Madness (March 1-April 3) at EnterTRAINment Junction, which features the world’s largest indoor model train display, the wacky A-MAZE-N FunHouse, American Railroading Museum, giant kids’ play area, an amazing Coney Island replica interactive display and more. During March Madness, admission to the A-Maze-N FunHouse (“The Greatest Funhouse on Earth”) is only $1.25 with the purchase of a Train Journey ticket. Hot Dogs are only 25¢ each all month long and select items in the incredible hobby and toy shop are reduced as much at 50%.

EnterTRAINment Junction is open daily Mon.-Sat 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sundays noon-6 p.m. It is located at 7379 Squire Ct. in West Chester. Parking is free. For more information: (513) 898-8000. (877-898-4656). www.entertrainmentjunction.com
